Want to play with me?

Due to recent drama, my World of Warcraft guild on the Lightbringer server has disbanded. Sigh. We were a fun group, the "Baby Seal Club Clubbing Club".

Do you play World of Warcraft? Want me to help you do quests or fight with your guild? Are you gay, or gay-friendly? Want to chat about kinky bear and leather things while we kill monsters?

Please let me know 1) what server you are on, 2) aliiance or horde, and 3) what your character's name is.

Leaves of grass

As part of “April Poetry Month”, I decided to read Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass”. It was also penance to a friend when I complained that I hated poetry.

The book is very good, but I found my attention often wandering. I would have to re-read sections over and over again, and even then I wasn’t sure if I understood what the author was trying to get at. I often didn’t think I “got it right”.

However, I really empathize with Whitman’s homosexual humanism. Let’s face it: the guy liked rough trade. His rhapsody of the working man is a sublimated expression of his desire to shag them. And I can relate. Here are some stanzi I liked:

Now I realize while Bill gave Monica a copy of this book!

NWS (Not Word Sane)

I apologize for blogging about sex so much. But here is my rationalization:

Imagine a room full of gay men (mmmm, men). What do we all have in common? Not politics: I am a Democrat, my partner Michael is a Republican, while my friend Mark is a Libertarian. Not any taste in fashion or music or art. I am a good example of a gay man without taste or style. One of the things I love about going to a gay bar is that I might sit between a homeless guy and millionaire, and nobody knows the difference. Gay guys can hold a wide range of jobs, with a variety of hobbies.

So, what do all gay men have in common? A: They like to have sex with other gay men. That’s it. We don’t share a common philosophy or cause. Attending gay pride meetings last year reminded me that the only thing gay men and lesbians have in common is a shared political persecution.

I like to write about gay sex in my blog. It’s the only thing every other gay men also has an interest in. Forget about telling you what I ate for breakfast – I know that you really want to see my penis.
